iPhone App Downloads Pass 1.5 Billion

Wednesday 15th July 2009 - 09:22

Apple's App Store has hit the 1.5 billion download mark just a few days after celebrating its first anniversary.

iTunes now has more than 65,000 apps available in 77 countries, with over 100,000 developers registered with the iPhone Developer Program.

Steve Jobs, who appears to be back at work, said in a press release: "With 1.5 billion apps downloaded, it is going to be very hard for others to catch up."

There was no indication from Apple on what percentage of the downloaded apps were free and what percentage were paid for.

Apple has now shipped over 40 million iPhones and iPod touches.
